Explore the relationship between culture and morality: How do humans discern between right and wrong? How do these decisions shape our communities and cultures? How does culture influence our values? Melvin Konner and Jonathan Haidt kick off the conversation, with new voices added weekly.
How would you engage high school or college students in an exploration of the ideas raised by our Culture and Conscience question? We are currently accepting submissions of educational objectives and strategies, classroom materials, and learning processes you might use with secondary or higher education students for a course on culture and conscience. The winner will receive $1000 and the winning curriculum will be shared on our website. Click the banner for more details!
Our exploration of culture and conscience is a partnership with the On Being radio show and podcast. Listen to a podcast of a conversation on this Question, moderated by On Being's creator and host Krista Tippett and featuring our invited contributors, Melvin Konner and Jonathan Haidt.
